"We are committed to removing unnecessary roadblocks that would hinder access to the high-quality education provided by the College of Coastal Georgia. Our mission is student success, and we will do whatever we can to help students reach their potential. That is something that COVID-19 can never change."

Prospective first-time students must meet all other admission requirements including satisfactory completion of the Required High School Curriculum and all other requested documentation.

"It has never been simpler to become a Mariner," said Dr. Jason Umfress, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, "We are still moving full speed ahead in preparing to welcome the summer and fall 2020 classes." Early indicators for fall enrollment are up and new inquiries continue to come into the Office of Admissions at the College. "Admissions, financial aid, advising, and other offices are still up and running at the College," said Umfress "In this time of uncertainty in our state and our nation, we want students to be reassured that their academic futures are still achievable. We are eager to help."
